I feel like it's not just against us... kickers are missing field goals all over the place.   Gould missed a bunch last night.  Not all his fault, but it seems every game there's missed 40 yarders.

It does seem kickers are missing way more kicks this season. Maybe those long PATs are the problem?

I find this REALLY, REALLY unlike anything I've seen as a Bills fan. I'd gotten totally used to kickers nailing big moment 55 yarders like it was a PAT.

There must have been some magic in that old Bills hat he found, cause when he put it on his head, the Bills season turned around...

I’m thinking it’s Pancho Billa still attending Games and having an even bigger impact on the team than before.🙏😇

I read that kickers versus the Bills are 2-8 on field goals (Santos 0-4 added greatly).

 

Also they have missed 2 PAT’s

 

I think we need a new "This way of winning is unsustainable" thread

Not may fault franchises don't understand the value of special teams. I couldn't believe my eyes when the Jets signed a guy that struggled mightly in pre-season.

 

Even in the drought years, we understood the importance of having a good kicking/punting game.

Through five games, the Bills' opponents are just 2/8 on Field Goal attempts. They are 6/8 on extra points. 

 

That means the Bills' opponents are only converting on 25% of FGA, and only 75% of PAT.

 

I know that trend cannot possibly continue but... yikes.

You have very little to base that on. The games change by the minute, depending on the score. Yes, a blowout win would be a nice reprieve from all the suspense, but the Bills are doing whatever it takes in the games they play to win.

I’m on Punters. At least FG kickers have to kick a ball between uprights, from normally 40+ yards and have to account for wind, snow, etc.

 

A Punter can stand on varied spots on the field, where he is likely to be kicking from. Why TH can’t he hone in on small 5 yard zones near the sideline Goalline and not through the freaking End Zone most times? 👎🏻😡

 

Go to the Stadium in off hours and kick them by the hundreds until it’s the same motion, every time.

It's why they need the replay rule on kicks, too.

 

Some of those might actually have been good.

Not only bad kickers, but also opposing team penalties. Why, in one drive the Titans had two TDs called back for penalties, followed by a missed field goal.

 

If if weren't for their penalties and the missed field goal, the Titans would have scored 17 points on that drive alone!

 

And by golly, THAT would expose 'the process' as a fraud.

Santos just released! With Gostkowski going on IR right after the Bills-Pats game and Kaare Vedvik getting cut right after the Bills-Jets game, you really don't want to be a kicker facing the Bills. 

Vedvik was cut Twice after facing the Bills once in Minny, next in NY.

Yeah, I’m feeling good about this season. You always need breaks to be a winning team, but we could easily be 2-3 if our opponents made field goals. Rather than talking about our elite defense (which we do have), we’d be discussing how our putrid offense ruined the season.
